Phuket’s Sri Panwa was voted the “Best Resort Hotel in Thailand” by travellers who use the Lonely Planet travel guide. The award was presented at a recent ceremony held at the Hilton Bangkok hotel. Wan Vorasit Issara, Managing Director of Sri panwa, accepted the award on behalf of their employees from the Publisher of Lonely Planet Thailand, Dhitibhum Wongkiatkachorn.
Lonely Planet Magazine invited travellers to participate in a survey that rated their resort experiences from June to July 2013. The votes were then internally audited to assure their validity and the nominations were short listed by a panel of travel experts. Finally, readers voted, both online and in their magazine, for their favourites in 11 categories. Phuket’s Sri panwa was declared the winner in the Best Resort Hotel in Thailand category.
